Don't spend the money on it. Just patent the idea and then sue however tries it. It worked for NTP and that small company that sued M$.

bad idea - turn it into a server instead - costs about the same (?) useability - a great deal better... though I appreciate you may wish to move it about - you could do this with a server anyway...
